on immigration without public discussion in town halls. i want to credit senator john mccain, a veteran of the immigration wars on capitol hill. he's held meetings and is beginning to hear from his constituents. it's as if all of washington decided now that they are the french aristocrats of the 18th century. this is becoming unseemble, don't you think? >> well, i'm all for full disclosure and transparency in things we do, especially dealing with people's pocketbooks and wallets to ensure we are good stewards of the money. right now, people in washington, as you of all people know, they are not. they are just spending like there's no tomorrow like pigs in a trough. i used that before, and we need to stop, and to make sure that -- listen, i love john mccain, a real mentor to me in washington and someone i consider a national hero, and the fact he's out there doing the town hall meetings, taking the lumps and praise to at least bringing the conversation to the people and letting them be part of the process, i think, can be comanted. we have to do that with everything. we were under the gu
